September 21, 2018: Know Better, Do Better: Part Two
Guest: Sarah Brown, Executive Director, Empira

Empira is a consortium of Aging Service providers who are committed to improving the aging experience by knowing and doing better. Collectively, the organizations that make up Empira challenge the status quo by understanding the root cause of problems and outcomes. By understanding the root cause, they are able to create meaningful and sustainable culture change. They have created a signature series on

  1. Falls
  2. Restorative sleep
  3. Behavioral expression and
  4. Work of aging

Hear about their approach to quality improvement that focuses on human needs and behavior.

*The second show in the series will share Empira’s findings regarding what really causes falls, i.e. noise — and meaningful ways to reduce falls other than alarms.
